Racism and discrimination is thriving in Iran
The Iranian government is failing to prevent discrimination against its Kurdish population, Amnesty International says. Below is an article published by Human Rights Digest: Iran's government is failing in its duty to prevent discrimination and human rights abuses against its Kurdish citizens, particularly women, said Amnesty International in a new report published today [31 July 2008]. The organization expressed fears that the repression of Kurdish Iranians, particularly human rights defenders, is intensifying. The report cites examples of religious and cultural discrimination against the estimated 12 million Kurds who live in Iran and form around 15 per cent of the population. It focuses on issues related to housing, education and employment. Human rights defenders and media workers are also being targeted for speaking out. "Iran's constitution provides for equality of all Iranians before the law. But, as our report shows, this is not the reality for Kurds in Iran. The Iranian government has not taken sufficient steps to eliminate discrimination, or to end the cycle of violence against women and punish those responsible," said Amnesty International. The report says that Kurdish women face a double challenge to have their rights recognized — as members of a marginalised ethnic minority, and as women in a predominantly patriarchal society. Although women and girls form the backbone of economic activity in the Kurdish areas, strict social codes are used to justify denial of their human rights. Such codes mean that it can be very difficult for government officials to investigate inequalities in girls' education, early and forced marriages, and domestic violence against Kurdish girls and women — and the severe consequences of some of these abuses, including "honour killings" and suicide. "Kurdish women are victims of violence on a daily basis and face discrimination from state officials, groups or individuals, including family members. Iranian authorities are obliged to exercise due diligence in eradicating violence against women in the home and in the community but this just isn't happening," Amnesty International said. The report Iran: Human rights abuses against the Kurdish minority recognizes that while expression of Kurdish culture, such as dress and music, is generally respected and that the Kurdish language is used in some broadcasts and publications, the Kurdish minority continues to suffer deep-rooted discrimination. Recent cases have highlighted particular human rights violations involving Kurds: To read more : http://www.unpo.org/article/8462 Also read: UN anti-racism panel finds Iran discriminating against Kurds, Arabs, other ethnic minorities 28.8.2010 http://www.ekurd.net/mismas/articles/misc2010/8/irankurd648.htm DISCRIMINATION AGAINST KURDISH IRANIANS UNCHECKED AND ON THE RISE http://www.amnesty.org/en/news-and-updates/report/discrimination-against-kurdish-iranians-unchecked-and-rise-20080730 Racism by the Islamic Republic of Iran http://my.telegraph.co.uk/actuality/realdeal/15813544/racism-by-the-islamic-republic-of-iran/

Pope meets with ambassadors on religious freedom
Vatican City, Jan 10, 2011 / 01:56 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Benedict XVI has once more urged Muslim religious leaders and repressive governments to do more to protect the rights of Christians and other religious minorities in their countries. The Pope used his annual address to diplomats Jan. 10, known as his "state of the world address," to highlight the growing assault on religious freedoms around the world. His tough language underscored the urgency of the conditions facing Christians around the world. He again condemned attacks in recent months on Christians in Iraq, Egypt and Nigeria. "This succession of attacks is yet another sign of the urgent need for the governments of the region to adopt, in spite of difficulties and dangers, effective measures for the protection of religious minorities," the Pope said. He decried the assassination of the governor of Punjab state in Pakistan and urged Pakistanis to "abrogate" a blasphemy law that has been used by Muslim extremists to intimidate and imprison Christians. "The particular influence of a given religion in a nation ought never to mean that citizens of another religion can be subject to discrimination in social life or, even worse, that violence against them can be tolerated," the Pope said. Benedict XVI also offered words of encouragement to Catholics in China, who he said were facing "a time of difficulty and trial." He praised a recent effort by European Union leaders to defend the rights of Christians in the Middle East. He also welcomed a move last October by the Council of Europe to protect the rights of health care workers to "conscientious objection" against participating in abortions. However, the Pope also had strong words for European governments and others in the West for their "marginalization of religion," especially Christianity. Despite their professed interest in "pluralism and tolerance," the Pope said, in many countries in the West "there is a tendency to consider religion, all religion, as something insignificant, alien or even destabilizing to modern society, and to attempt by different means to prevent it from having any influence on the life of society." "Christians are even required at times to act in the exercise of their profession with no reference to their religious and moral convictions, and even in opposition to them, as for example where laws are enforced limiting the right to conscientious objection on the part of health care or legal professionals," Pope Benedict said. In addition, the Pope criticized efforts to ban Christian holidays and symbols "under the guise" of showing respect for non-Christians and atheists. "By acting in this way, not only is the right of believers to the public expression of their faith restricted, but an attack is made on the cultural roots which nourish the profound identity and social cohesion of many nations." The Pope also took aim at efforts in Latin American countries to limit Church-run schools. The Church and religious believers must have the freedom to make decisions about how best to educate their young, he said. He added: "I cannot remain silent about another attack on the religious freedom of families in certain European countries which mandate obligatory participation in courses of sexual or civic education which allegedly convey a neutral conception of the person and of life, yet in fact reflect an anthropology opposed to faith and to right reason." The Pope's address was delivered to a group of diplomats representing the 178 nations that maintain relations with the Holy See in the picturesque Sala Regia at the Vatican. In his lengthy discourse he said that it is time for world leaders to recognize that religion is a fundamental part of human nature. "The religious dimension is an undeniable and irrepressible feature of man's being and acting, the measure of the fulfillment of his destiny and of the building up of the community to which he belongs," the Pope explained. Religious freedom is "the first of human rights," because it is about man's relation with his Creator, he said. Freedom of worship, he reminded diplomats, is not full religious freedom. Believers must be able to practice their faith in all aspects of their life in society. Religious institutions, too, must be free to operate in society. He pointed to a kind of double standard that exists in the way the world regards religious freedom. "One cannot create a sort of scale of degrees of religious intolerance," he said. "Unfortunately, such an attitude is frequently found, and it is precisely acts of discrimination against Christians which are considered less grave and less worthy of attention on the part of governments and public opinion." He urged the diplomats to remember that religion is a force for peace and development in their countries. He pointed to the example of the late Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcuta, whose 100th birthday was celebrated in many countries last year.

Why 'anti racists' are unnatural.
What is your opinion about left wingers? My opinion about left wingers is that people that are genuinely left wing tend to be whites. You will not find as many left wingers in the black community, in Mexican community, among Muslims and so on and so forth - and I can already hear people say "Hey hey, they're both left". Yes, they're both left to advance their own agendas. 'Anti racism' for them is a self-congratulatory title to socially and genetically advance their own agendas on the backs of the naive Uncle Toms i.e. the left wingers. They're not genuinely socially liberal, they tend to be extremely culturally conservative - and that brings me to the left wingers now. The fact that they're defending people that are very culturally conservative and the fact that they go against what is the 'human inclination' or the 'default position' since our birth which is xenophobia and ethnocentrism (as shown in my series 'racism's natural') that tells me that what they're doing is not normal, it is not healthy. Any people, or any sub-species , or any specie or plant or whatever, that have no problem allowing, that destroys the defenders of what they genetically are, and allow, and instead actually defend genetic competitors: they're not going to live very long in evolution. So these views are going to die out. Genuine left wing views are going to die off, very quickly. So what left wingers really are, is, they are brainwashed. what they're doing is not something normal, it's not something that would normally evolve in evolution, because it would get kicked out pretty quickly, and it goes against the default position of the average human. Black nationalists and radical Muslims are just doing what is natural, what they're supposed to do more or less. They're abusing, they're taking advantage of the situation. So left wingers are going to be irreverent, they're not going to be, they're saying goodbye to themselves. They're not going to be here in a couple of decades. The battle is really between Black nationalists, and White nationalists and Muslims. Those are the relevant groups. Who is going to hoist the flag? Well it's either white nationalists or Muslims in Europe. The left wingers, they're irreverent in this aspect, So what do I think about them, left wingers? More or less brain washed, for reasons given. Black nationalists, radical Muslims is doing what any sensible person or group would do. They have their own interests and there's a naive stupid group that aid them. Why not take use, take advantage of that? And as a result the left wing views are going to disappear. They will be replaced by Black nationalists and radical Muslims. Anti racism is a self congratulatory title to fence around a social agenda. I hope I have given enough concepts there to work with but that's what I think.

India Untouched: Stories of a People Apart, Feature Documentary by Stalin K. Part 1 of 4
Stalin K.’s award-winning feature-length documentary is perhaps the most comprehensive look at untouchability ever undertaken on film. The powerful stories and shocking visuals in this film makes it impossible for anyone to deny that Untouchability is still practiced in India today. Director Stalin K. and his team spent four years traveling the length and breadth of India to bear witness to the continued exclusion and segregation of those considered as 'Untouchables' . The film introduces leading Benares scholars who interpret Hindu scriptures to mean that Dalits 'have no right' to education, and Rajput farmers who proudly proclaim that the police must seek their permission before pursuing cases of atrocities on Dalits. The film captures many 'firsts-on-film, ' such as Dalits being forced to dismount from their cycles and remove their shoes when in the upper caste part of the village. It exposes the continuation of caste practices and Untouchability in Sikhism, Christianity and Islam, amongst the Communists in Kerala and within some of India's most revered academic and professional institutions. In an age where the media projects only one image of a 'rising' or 'poised' India, this film reminds us how far the country is from being an equal society. Traveling through eight states and four religions, this film is perhaps the deepest exploration of caste oppression ever undertaken on film. Stalin K is a human rights activist and award-winning documentary filmmaker and the director of Video Volunteers, the Co-Founder of DRISHTI- Media, Arts and Human Rights and the President of the Community Radio Forum-India. He is a renowned public speaker and has lectured or taught at over 50 institutions ranging from the National Institute of Design and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in India, to New York University and Stanford and Berkeley in the US. INDIA UNTOUCHED is Stalin's second film on the issue of caste -- his earlier film 'Lesser Humans', on manual scavenging, won the Silver Conch at the Mumbai International Film Festival and the Excellence Award at Earth Vision Film Festival, Tokyo, and helped to bring international attention to the issue of caste. He also leads the Article 17 Anti-Untouchability campaign in Video Volunteers through which Community Correspondents are documenting hundreds of instances of untouchability and caste conflict, some of which have formed the basis for a Public Interest Litigation in the Indian Supreme Court, filed with the Human Rights Law Network. For more information or to contact Stalin K. please post a reply on Stalin’s blog here. https://stalink.wordpress.com/documentaries/india-untouched/ This is only one part of this documentary.

SACR 2011 - Judit Durst - The role of Minority Group Status in family formation and childbearing ...
The Material Culture (Re)Turn in Anthropology: Promises and Dead-ends 8th conference of the Society for Cultural Anthropology from Romania, Bucharest, 22-25 September 2011, www.antropo.ro "I always felt as the Odd One Out":The role of Minority Group Status in family formation and childbearing among highly educated Roma and Non-Roma women in Hungary -- a comparative study Judit Durst To test the minority Group Status hypothesis I carried out a qualitative research, based on in- depth life history interviews among 45 Roma women with university degrees, and their partners/husbands if they were cohabiting. As a basis for comparison as to the the role of minority group identification in fertility behaviour, I could also benefit from the experience of a comparative, qualitative demographic research which was carried out among 40, Non- Roma medium and highly educated women and their partners in Hungary (and in 4 other post-socialist countries, see Repro Project [REPRO WP5], led by the Max Plank Institute for Demographic Research). One of mine main findings is that minority status does have an effect on reproductive strategies- but it works through the interplay of many intermediate factors. Among others the difficulty for the highly educated women to find the right partner whom they want to form a family; the incompatibility between their perception of their gender roles and their partner.s expectation regarding these roles; and the relatively long period of self-establishment, self-expression or self-fulfilment of the studied women in a society where being Roma is a strongly stigmatised identity. All these factors point to the same direction: delaying the first birth.

Pope asks bishops of Angola to act against witchcraft
October 31, 2011. (Romereports.com) The bishops of Angola and Sao Tomé met with the pope recently, during their ad limina visit. After the bishops sang their welcoming song, the pope focused on three main points. One of them was on traditional marriage. The pope said the low number of Catholic marriages in those areas, shows a lack of spiritual maturity. He asked the bishops to promote a traditional family life amid a culture of co-habitation. Benedict XVI "The first problem is couples living together before marriage. This contradicts God's plan for generations and the human family." The pope then talked about the danger of combining Christianity with some traditional African religions, some of which practice witchcraft. Even though baptized, some people fall into the cultural practices of witchcraft. The pope condemned these acts, which at times even lead to the murder of children and the elderly. Benedict XVI "But through the grace of Baptism, they are called to renounce these prevailing trends. They must go against this, guided by the spirit of Beatitudes." The pope recognized that discrimination among tribes is a challenging reality, that must be overcome. He thanked the bishops for taking on their pastoral mission, in areas that usually don't welcome foreigners. At the heart of the Holy Father's remarks to the bishops, however, was a threefold warning and encouragement for the bishops: against the temptations of the spirit of the age and mores of society, and for the strength to be authentic witnesses to the Gospel, especially as regards the basic structure and life of the family -- noting that the bishops have made marriage and family as the pastoral priorities of their current three-year cycle of pastoral initiatives. The Pope called on the bishops to help couples acquire the necessary human and spiritual maturity to take their mission as Christian spouses and parents responsibly, reminding them that their spousal love should be lived as it is: unique and indissoluble as the covenant between Christ and his Church. "This precious treasure," said Pope Benedict, "is to be safeguarded at all costs." The second major area of concern for the Holy Father was the danger, especially among the recently baptised, of a heart still divided between Christianity and African traditional religions. Noting that many people do not hesitate to resort to practices incompatible with Christian faith and morals in order to deal with life's trials, the Pope Benedict condemned as abominable the practice of witchcraft, which often leads to the marginalization and even murder of children and the elderly. "Mindful that human life is sacred in all its phases and situations," he said, "continue, dear bishops, to raise your voice in favor of their victims." Finally, the Holy Father mentioned the tangible remnants of tribalism in the attitudes of ethnic communities that tend to be closed, and not to accept people from other parts of the nation. The Pope expressed his appreciation to those of the bishops who accepted a pastoral mission outside the confines of their language or regional group, and he thanked the priests and the people who welcomed and helped them. Then, offering affectionate greetings to all the members of their local Churches, and entrusting the whole Church in Angola and Sao Tomé to the protection of the Virgin Mary, Pope Benedict imparted his Apostolic Blessing.

Dalits in Disasters- the forsaken ones
Though disasters are not caste prejudiced, but the bitter fact is that the ethnic minorities in the country, the Dalits and Tribes, with their women, children, disabled and aged turn out to be most vulnerable of the vulnerable. Here are some findings of the monitoring studies that were undertaken by National Dalit Watch along with its state allies in Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Delhi, to assess the inclusion of the Dalits and other marginalised sections in disaster risk reduction and disaster relief and rehabilitation measures. These findings speak volumes of the existing menace in our country which opposed and supported the annihilation of aparthied in S. Africa.

Harsh Realities of Dalits in India
64 years of freedom and dalits remain captive. ?I believe that if Gandhi ever made a mistake it was grouping all of us lower castes under the term ?Harijan?, ?says Community Correspondent (CC) Satyawan Verma from Hisar, Haryana. Amit Kumar, CC from Kurukshetra also in Haryana nods in agreement. ?It literally means ?the people of God?. But the label stuck and a single word effectively ghettoised around 200 million people,? he says. ?I realize that perhaps he had our best interests in mind but the fact that only we were supposed to play ?god?s people? seems patronizing. If I am ?god?s people?, so is everyone, you and me and everything under the sun.? Jai Kumar, CC from Ludhiana in the neighbouring state of Punjab is visibly agitated. ?I hope the British would return to rule us all over again,? he explodes. One is perplexed and lost at this seemingly reactionary, anti-national outburst but Amit steps in to explain his comrade?s stand and anger. He says,? Before independence, we were gathering garbage, cleaning drains, scavenging, being abused and tortured and denied our human rights. After independence, very little has changed. There is an India on the road to progress, registering itself as a major player in the scheme of the world but for us dalits, India is a country where time has stood still for thousands of years.? Satyawan, Amit and Jai have been community leaders and dalit activists before they joined IndiaUnheard. Their experiences speak not just from the grassroots work they have done with their communities but also from the life they have lived. At 23, Satyawan became the youngest headman of his village. But as he tried to work his way around the political system, he found that in his predominantly upper caste constituency, caste put him at a disadvantage. He never received the grants that were supposed to come to him and he realized that the only way he was going to get any work done was by paying through his own pocket. So exasperated was he at the end of his term that he refused to stand for the re-election. For Amit, it was the discrimination that he experienced in school at the hands of upper caste students and teachers and later, his co-workers when he began work in the private sector that solidified his resolve to speak out for his community. And so disillusioned was Jai with the oppression of caste that he renounced his religion and turned a Buddhist. ?Caste is the elephant in contemporary India?s room,? he says. ?It?s taking so much space that I can hardly get my toe in.? Investigating the caste system in India is an exasperating and frequently paradoxical process. Its origins and existence have been made vague but the system has worked its way into every major religion and public and private spaces. But still, the official line on caste discrimination teeters between complete denial and the attempt to sweep the whole mess under the carpet. They would have you believe that the country has collectively enlightened and risen beyond this petty ?aparthied?. They would tell you that the Constitution of the country which provides social, political and economic justice for all has in place provisions which ensure that the lives, dignity and livelihood of the dalits are secure. Any exploitation along the lines of caste has been forbidden and long abolished. In fact, they?ll tell you, the most vulnerable segments are given special protection. Special reservations have been made for the underprivileged so that they can participate in the economic, social and political mainstream. From the couch to the TV, it appears as an inspiring portrait of a young nation of one billion citizens moving upwards into a brighter future. You have to look beyond the mainstream, towards the margins to realize that every day, in every 18 minutes, in the space of 3 advertisement breaks and half a news program, an atrocity crime is committed against a dalit. A closer inspection of the systems of power in India can testify to the exploitation and marginalization of the dalits. You may see it or you may not but it?s everywhere. In the political scheme, in spite of constitutional reservation, dalit representatives are few. The paradox remains that the dalit vote bank is much sought after and political parties are known to offer false promises and even stoop as low as to resort to blatantly undemocratic measures like threatening and pressurizing the people to gather their vote. Even so-called dalit parties are known to suspend all disbelief and willingly join hands with the upper caste right wing if that assures then a place in the ruling government. ?Dalit ideology and identity is missing from present day politics,? says Satyawan, speaking from experience. ?What is the point is you are a dalit but speak in the words of a Brahmin?? The justice system fares no better. The conviction rate for crimes against dalits is a paltry 15% and 85% of cases are kept in a perpetual state of being ?pending?.

Kate Hennessy - Repatriation, Digital Media, and Culture in the Virtual Museum
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS). Many Canadian First Nations and Aboriginal organizations are using digital media to revitalize their languages and assert control over the representation of their cultures. At the same time, museums, academic institutions, and individuals are digitizing their ethnographic collections to make them accessible to originating communities. In this presentation I will explore how the term "virtual repatriation" is being applied to the digitization and return of heritage to Aboriginal communities, and draw attention to the opportunities, challenges, and critiques associated with digitization, circulation, and remix of Aboriginal cultural heritage. I will discuss recent projects including the collaborative production of a Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit with the Doig River First Nation, a Dane-zaa community in northeastern British Columbia, and a current collaborative production of a virtual exhibit with members of the Inuvialuit community in the western Arctic and curators at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. I will show that while access to cultural heritage in digital collections can facilitate the articulation of intellectual property rights to digital cultural heritage----including the right to restrict circulation----it also amplifies the difficulty of enforcing those rights. Kate Hennessy is an Assistant Professor specializing in Media at Simon Fraser University's School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT). She has a PhD in Anthropology from the University of British Columbia and an MA in the Anthropology of Media from the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies. As the director of the Making Culture Lab at SIAT, her research explores the role of digital technology in the documentation and safeguarding of cultural heritage, and in the mediation of culture, history, objects, and subjects in new forms. Her video and multimedia works investigate documentary methodologies to address Indigenous and settler histories of place and space. She is a founding member of the Ethnographic Terminalia Curatorial Collective, an international group exploring the borders of anthropological, curatorial, and artistic practice (http://ethnographicterminalia.org). As assistant editor of the journal Visual Anthropology Review, she designed its first multimedia volume. Her work has been published in journals such as American Indian Quarterly, Museum Anthropology Review, and Visual Anthropology Review. She was a Trudeau Foundation Scholar from 2006-2010, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Graduate Scholar from 2005-2009, a Canadian Polar Commission Scholar in 2006-2007, and a Commonwealth Scholar in 2001-2002.

Award Winning Best Film : Renita Renita / part.2
Trapped in a male body, Renita wanted to be a doctor and a woman since she was a child but her parents forced her to study at a Islamic school where she was bullied and ostracised. She rebelled by becoming a prostitute in the hope of finding freedom but instead, found that it came at a cost -- she experienced brutality and was discriminated against by her family and the Indonesian society in which she lived "People think that becoming a transsexual is a profession. It's not a profession. We do this because we need some food. Although we want to have a position in the government, they will not recruit us. Private companies won't accept us either - except working in a beauty parlour." Renita says. "A surprising and close look into a different kind of life. The documentary does not offer simple ready answers, but makes one define what is normal." Jukka-Pekka Laakso. Director of Tampere Film Festival Finland, said. "A familiar approach to a familiar theme in recent documentary.The mournful music comments too heavily on the images, which themselves sometimes seem random." say Chris Fujiwara film critic and columnist Hollywood Reporter and Variety. " A very interesting movie; the treatment is brilliant and special because it is dealt in a very different way creating a strange sensitivy. A new dimension is revealed paving the way to claim their rightful demands. A goodeffort Tapan Sinha, film director from India. This film win : Best Film at Culture Unplugged Film Festival India, 2010 Best Asia Film at 9th Cinemanila International Film Festival Philiphines 2009 and invite more twenty world film festival Produce, directed by Tonny Trimarsanto

Dalit Women demand Sanitation  Dignity
Even as the north Indian state of Haryana celebrates the successful implementation of the Total Sanitation Campaign, every day the around 800 residents of the village of Titram in Haryana are forced to defecate in the open. The traditional piece of land where that the villagers used as an open community toilet has been taken away by the authorities who have a made a vague promise to build infrastructure for modern toilets. In the meantime, the people have no choice to squat on the sides of the busy roads. Defecating across the road is not only dangerous and unsanitary but demeaning and humiliating. Vulnerable groups like young girls, women and children are the greatest risk. The women especially are forced to wake up before the break of dawn or wait till late evening so they can be covered by the darkness. ?A majority of the village population are dalits,? explains Community Correspondent Amit Kumar who made a video on the absence of basic sanitation in Titram. ?Most of them are employed as daily wage labourers and at the end of a hard day?s work; they can barely manage to make ends meet. And adding to the marginalization is the fact that the village borders two districts- Kaithal and Jind. Each district tries to pass on the responsibility of the village to the other and in the bargain, the village is left in shambles.? The Total Sanitation Campaign is a rural program promises the construction of individual households Latrines (IHHLs) for families living below the poverty line, construction of institutional toilets like schools and Anganwaris, and women Sanitary Complexes besides low cost solid and liquid Waste Management. Reports say that over 800 villages in rural Haryana benefitted from this scheme but Titram seems to have been left out of the loop. ?The authorities have promised the people that if they come together with 10% of the budget required to construct a toilet, the government is prepared to put in the remaining,? says Amit. ?It is a scheme that has worked elsewhere but in a village like Titram where people are living hand to mouth it seems like an unreasonable demand. The few rich people in the village already have private toilet so they are not willing to contribute while the majority poor have been left with no options.? The village of Titram is asking only for a degree of convenience and dignity. But so far even the most basic human needs have seemed out of reach.

Antifascist Attitude
Anti-fascist attitude is first ever document on emerging Russian anti-fascist movement which made by the activist themselves. Movie features both moderate NGO activists and radical grassroots activists and anarchists from three cities - Moscow, St. Petersburg and Irkutsk. It also features Stanislav Markelov, murdered in Moscow 19th of January. Die Dokumentation »Antifascist Attitude« (RUS 2008, 73 min.) eines unabhängigen Medienkollektivs aus Russland zeigt antifaschistische Aktivitäten und stellt in Interviews Antifas aus Moskau, St. Petersburg und Irkutsk vor -- darunter auch der Rechtsanwalt Stas Markelov, der am 19.01.2009 bei einem Attentat in der russischen Hauptstadt erschossen wurde. Außerdem werden antifaschistische Aktionen, Demonstrationen und Konzerte gezeigt. "Antifascist Attitude" es el primer documental sobre el emergente movimiento antifascista ruso que ha sido realizado por lxs propixs activistas. En el fim aparecen tanto activistas moderadxs de ONGs como "activistas radicales" de base y anarquistas de tres ciudades: Moscú, San Petersburgo e Irkutsk. También hay varias intervenciones de Stanislav Markelov, abogado y periodista asesinado en Moscú el 19 de Enero de 2009 debido a su actividad política. Описание: "Мнение Антифашиста" - это документальный фильм об антифашистском движении в России. Фильм представляет собой интервью участников движения, а так же видео с акций. Главной темой фильма являются методы и результаты борьбы с нацизмом с точки зрения самих антифашистов из Москвы, Санкт-Петербурга и Иркутска. Фильм создан Анархо-арт группой "Дети Бакунина". ilm Anti-fascist Attitude je zřejmě prvním dokumentem o vzrůstající ruské antifašistické scéně, který ovšem natočili samotní aktivisté. Jak se dozvíme v úvodním monologu ještě před samotným filmem, tvůrci (nebo tvůrkyně?) filmu z kolektivu Děti Bakunina se snažili být co nejvíce objektivní, proto v dokumentu dělají rozhovory s antifašisty a antifašistkami všech směrů -- těmi z nevládních organizací i těmi z ulic a klubů, oficiálními i „nelegálními", násilnými i pacifistickými, ze subkultur i v oblecích.
